True Heart

Mocha Momma, from Life: Be in It gave me the True Heart Award, and I thank her so much for it.

"Those who receive this award are of the sweetest nature. They are kind, fun, friendly, loving, eager to share their love for Jesus with others, and brave with their effords to reflect Him with this darkened world. They are the kind of folks you are blessed to know, even if it is only in the bloggy- sphere¨--- From Mocha Momma

I am not sure I deserve those worlds. There are people whom those words describe them because of their nature. It comes easy to them. The light of Jesus just shine through them. Those are the ladies we look up to.

For me, it is not like that. I have a daily battle with my flesh to even be close to accomplish one of those things in my life. But I can see God working in me, despise my own self, and it is a blessing to know that maybe someone can caught a glimpse of that work God is doing in me. He is taking my old nature and is making me new. And I thank Him for it. Because I know there is no good in me aside from Him.

Well, I am suppossed to pass this award along. I know many of you have already receive, although you would be the ones I would think of to pass it also. So I am going to try to give it to those that deserve also, but I don´t think they have received it. I also want to give it to those ladies that I follow that are married to the ministry because of the godly man they married.

Nina, from Portugal Bound for sharing the Light of Jesus with the people in Portugal

Rachel from Smith Family of Six for her service as a Pastor´s wife

Nan from Moms The Word. Her blog reflect Jesus and other fun stuff :)

Jill from Jill Boyd Place for her service in the mission field in the past and now as a pastor´s wife

Ingrid from Reaching Brazil for her service in the ministry

I know there are more, but I will stop for now.

Again, Mocha Momma, thanks so much, I feel so honored that among all those godly ladies you thought of me. And to everyone else, have a wonderful blessed day!

None of us are perfect vessels, are we? Yet God, in His love, chose us and in our weakness we reflect His strength!

I see Jesus in you every time I come on your blog, my friend! Love you!

Thank you for this award and for your sweet words. I never heard those words "married to the ministry" until my hubby became a pastor!

I see from your widget that things have cooled off a bit for you today. 95. Still waaaay to hot for me, lol!

I totally agree with your pastor. Kids really do need some boundaries and consistency. I know that if I had a job and I had no idea what I was supposed to do and not do, it would drive me crazy.

I would never feel comfortable in my job, if I didn't know what was expected of me! I would want to know their expectations and my "duties."

Kids need to know what's expected and their "duties!"

I'm glad you accepted the award, Pilar. You are naturally trying your best to do God's will and you are so open to His work in your life.

You shine, baby, you shine with God's glory. Keep up the good work.

Take care,
